july 16th
Thank you all for Ostend Beach 2024!

This year marked the 14th time we partied together on Belgium’s north west coastline, and by all accounts it was our greatest edition ever.

Our aim has always been to make each event better than the year before, and from what we’re hearing from all of you, we definitely achieved that. Whether it was the addition of new stage designs or the phenomenal line-up we produced, we’re glad all of you are extremely happy.

We want all of you to love Ostend Beach as much as we do, because without you, there would be no Ostend Beach. Thank you all, we do this for you.

To every single artist who came from near and far, thanks for providing the incredible vibes that made 2024 what it was.

To our partners, sponsors, the city of Ostend, and anyone who supported us in creating Ostend Beach 2024, you have our thanks. To say we couldn’t have done this without you is an understatement.

And to every single soul in the Ostend Beach team of management, crew, production, volunteers, friends, family and anyone who gave their time to make this edition a reality, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We’re already looking forward to having everyone back on the sand for our 2025 edition on 12/13 July!

Lots of love, Ostend Beach Festival

Top-Up With Shells Now And Get Free Shells
This year is all about providing a better experience for all on our beach again, and one of the ways we're doing this for you all is by going cashless at Ostend Beach, with our currency: Shells.

Chances are, you've used cashless systems at a festival before, so we likely don't need to introduce the concept to you or how easy they are to use. However, unlike other events that may likely just list your cash as "money", "tokens", or "credit" on your wristband, we're of course going with a beach-y vibe, and naming them Shells.

You can already prepare for our party on sandy shores by topping up with Shells today, and reaping the rewards!

Shells are simple to use, and will already be topped up on your RFID wristband when you arrive at the festival site, so you won't have to bother about doing anything when you turn up to party. No waiting, no hassles.

But the best part is payment. Whenever you feel like grabbing a refreshing drink under the sun, or scoring a bite to eat, all you need to do is tap your wristband to use your Shells. It really couldn't be easier or faster, meaning you've got more time to enjoy the event, and party on the sand.

So get ready early for Ostend Beach, and load up with Shells and save NOW.

Lots of love, Ostend Beach Festival
